We should be 95% finished with the garage by the end of the day! But let’s start with last week’s exciting victory, the roughhewn back wall. For the design backstory and method for the wash on the tongue-and-groove Douglas Fir back wall, head over to Herman Miller’s LIFEWORK blog. The inspiration came from my neighbor Debra, who is the last word in taste on our block. She had the vision to see that roughhewn Doug Fir beams washed in gray would be this beautiful:

To contrast with the Farrow & Ball Light Gray walls and ceiling, our outstanding painter, Jeff Lee, stained the cedar beams across the ceiling in Minwax Provencial.

Up next: bookcases and garage doors!!! Oh, yeah, and more……………..PAINT!

  1. Like the wall of natural wood. Goes will with the rustic beams over the ceiling.
